Fruity Lashes Summer Nail Giveaway

This summer look was created to enter Fruity Lashes Giveaway. You can check her blog here.

                                These are the polishes I used to create this look.


Summer is finally here and for me it is the time of relaxing by the pool, swimming, wearing bright colours and enjoying plenty of ice cream.  This nail look was inspired by strawberry vanilla ice cream.

                                 yummy :)

Essie Sand Tropez

This is the last polish that I bought from a French Affair collection. I adore the colour of this polish – it is soft, milky beige with a bit of a grey undertone. I think it's a very classic colour for days when you want your nails to look pretty but do not feel like wearing too much colour.
For all the pictures above I used: Essie’s 3 – way glaze as a basecoat and my favourite Sally Hansen Mega Shine topcoat.

Essie Nice is Nice

Nice is Nice is definitely my summer go to colour. It is a dusty purple-lilac, super feminine and whimsical The application was a lot better then the one of French Affair. My first coat went on streaky, but worked itself out after the second coat. This is a good alternative if you're not into brighter purples but tired of natural colours.

Essie French Affair

From the bottle, French Affair looks great but the formula is thick and goopy and leaves distinctive streaks. The streaks will disappear slightly after the 2nd or 3rd coat. I'm not the best at applying polish but it's rarely this streaky. I had to do 3 coats but streaks were still visible. I should note I purchased the mini-set so my experience might be different from those who purchase the full-size bottle. I have to say I love this colour .It is a milky pink with a bit of lavender. Essie describes this colour as an innocent pink. I wouldn't buy the full size bottle though.

Essie Topless and Barefoot

This is another color of the Essie mini collection 2011. This polish was very streaky and it required three coats. In my opinion, this polish is rather overated. Nice color, but on my skin tone it doesn’t do much for me.

Essie Coat Azure

Hi everyone, 

hope you are all doing well. Today I have for you the polish called Coat Azure. It is one of the polishes that came in Essie Mini Nail Polish set. I believe the collection is called Essie Resort Collection Summer 2011.
Coat Azure is definitely my favourite colour in the group, it is a nice pastel dusty blue with a soft silver shimmer. I'll definitely wear this one a lot in the summer. 

3 coats no topcoat or basecoat

 Everything looks better with a little bit of glitter, right?
